Need your prepurchase thoughts

Hey Everybody! We currently have a hybrid chasing a 2015 Silverado 2500 Crew 6.0 4x4 Z71. We are looking to move up to a Grand Design Reflection 337RLS. First of all, does anyone have any experience with this coach and what are your thoughts on it, both specific and in general? Second, how do the more experienced 5er towers thinks this truck will handle this combination? Is it enough to vehicle or do we need a Duramax or even 3500 for this setup? I am not one to push my trucks to their limits, but I realize by the numbers this rig will push my truck pretty much right to it's limits.

Thanks for any input you can provide

There are quite a few GD owners on Facebook. In fact, they have their own FB group of over 3000. There is also a GD Owner's Forum.

If I recall, the owner's love the Customer Service, as well as their units.

Certainly, get involved in the GD Owners Forum--ask questions--find out what they know about the exact model you are looking at.
As in any RV purchase, be very careful of what is agreed to before the sale vs what is agreed to after the sale. A very careful Pre-Delivery Inspection is a must--take a video camera along to record what is said/shown.
Aside from that...enjoy!!

In answer to your power unit side of the question: I would not risk my loved ones on a single axle truck. I'm a trucker tho. Depends on how much road your going to see, and the increased cost of the dually. I'd go only Cummins power, just MHO.
